At South Seeds we can help you prepare for cold weather. We know how to help you reduce your energy use and stay warm in your home, over these colder months.

We have been visiting people in their homes, though our home energy auditing service, for eight years and helping solve their energy problems, from unwanted draughts to estimated bills. Our free home energy audit usually last around 40 minutes and our energy officers will come at a time that suits you. The energy officer will show you how to save energy and reduce your bills. If you are worried you may not remember all the information, we will send you a check list of actions and further information about how to get them done. People have told us this is really useful and has supported them to take actions which has saved them money.

Drop into our base at 514 Victoria Road or give us a call on 0141 636 3959 and find out more about reducing your energy use or how a home energy audit can help you.

Our three energy officers use their experience of finding solutions for making Victorian tenements warmer, dealing with energy companies to resolve long standing problems or helping to reduce energy debt.

This year, so far we have helped our clients save over £60,000! We have an energy saving handyman service which can be booked by anyone, and for a fee we can install measures from clothes pulley’s and draughtproofing to underfloor insulation.

We have other opportunities too, Although we are not gardening over Winter, we are preparing for Springtime by checking all our spaces, doing any repairs needed and getting ready for next year’s growers. If you are interested in growing with South Seeds, check our website and social media in February for more information. It may still feel like winter but it is the right time to think about how you can participate in growing opportunities.
